Xtra-Citra Pale Ale

Surly Xtra-Citra Pale Ale is still on South Florida's Total Wine shelves as part of their Brewery Direct program. My pounder was canned on 2/16/17, just a few weeks before I wrote this review (sorry to keep you waiting). The story says this beer "Xplodes with Citra hop flavor and aroma," so we better check it out immediately. 4.5% alcohol.

Nice fruity orange and citrus aroma, quite fresh. Fruity sweet flavors come first, orange-ade, citrus, tangerines. A hoppy balance does come, leaning slightly bitter. Very simple yet shows great flavor. Nice easy-drinking pale ale.
